1. IMPORTANT: Any number that represents a continuous variable type and comes from the U.S. Census has been adjusted to better match the PWC GIS Division's Quarter 4, 2018 population estimate. Therefore, these numbers will not match the American Community Survey values. Example: The population of those under age 18 originally reported by the U.S. Census ACS 2017 5-Year Estimates was 124,872, which is 27.7% of the total population for PWC as reported by the ACS (450,763). The GIS Division's Quarter 4 population estimate was 465,346. Therefore, the adjusted total for those under age 18 = 27.7% * 465,346. This brings the total of those under age 18 to 128,901. Each year on February 1st the standard data dictionary will be updated with the new ACS numbers and adjusted to the previous year's Quarter 4 population estimate produced by the GIS Division.
